Hi all,
With reference to the question about satellite operation for this years  
"International Lighthouse /Lightship "  
events  ( ILL ) dates Saturday 20 th and Sunday 21st august  2016.
Over here in Wales ( United Kingdom ) the  " Barry Amateur Radio  Society " 
 will be operating from a twin pair of lighthouses  located at "NASH POINT 
" situated on the coast of the Bristol Channel -  South Wales.
We will be limited to operation during approx. 0700 -1600 hrs GMT only I  
regret to say.
" In addition to operating on the HF and VHF bands I also plan  to set up 
my portable satellite equipment for operation and contacts during  suitable 
Callsign /Lighthouse and details as follows
GC4BRC - Lighthouse ( High ) Ref:  UK0071:

GC4BRS - Lighthouse ( Low )  Ref:  UK0072
Locator Ref: IO81FJ     QSL Manager : MW0DHF (  Philip King)
Weather is not looking to good - hopefully it will not deter our plans  for
